Race Fans Nation Wide

Look what we saw at the Chevelle-a-bration show in Nashville this summer.
Race fans nationwide have fond memories and videos of this car in action. However, many don't realize that this car is actually a real, documented Factory LS6 454-450 HP Chevelle. Most of the paint on the car is original- the interior is original- and even the original block goes with the car!
This car was originally purchased by famous drag racer Bob Hamilton as a gift for his wife. In time, he transformed it into the Red Alert. The beast is the former World Record Holder in SS/DA. The car is now owned and campaigned by the partnership of Terry Carney and Bill Stephenson. Bill also drives the Chevelle, beginning each pass with the unique twisting wheelstand that the car is known for. This was the best selling AMT plastic model ever, and is now available from Ertl in a die cast version.
